Ticket #852 (closed defect: fixed)
Bitlbee does not drop groups correctly in unix.c

When 'dropping privileges' bitlbee simply does a 'setgid' followed by a 'setuid' call in unix.c. However, this is not sufficient. The code needs to 'drop' the extra groups that the process was started with through initgroups or setgroups.
